Essential oils are oils that are extracted from various plant materials, flowers, herbs and trees. They have been used for many, many years because of their healing and therapeutic properties.

These oils are extracted from the actual plant, herb or tree and safety precautions must be used when handling them. Pure essential oils cannot be used directly on the skin; they must be diluted with a carrier oil such as olive oil, almond oils or other carrier oils.
Each essential oil has a specific benefit when used. Some are used as antiseptics, relaxers, antidepressants, anxiety relievers, antiviral, astringents, deodorants and many, many other uses depending on the oil used.
For the purposes of reviving your relationship and helping with lovemaking, certain essential oils are used as aphrodisiacs. They will aid in you and your spouse’s sexual awakening, leading to more romance and a better relationship.
